I think you didn't actually tag your wife though, her display name seems to have an additional letter 'l' here

For a medical professional, many of your statements are severely lacking in any sort of scientific basis or logic. Just a few thoughts off the cuff:
3. House plants produce a ridiculously negligible amount of Oxygen compared to the amount that a human breathes everyday. This makes no sense.
4. Most people already have to leave their house at least once a week, usually to go to a semi-crowded grocery store. Getting a vaccine will lower the odds of getting covid ~95%. If you do get still get covid, it decreases the worst symptoms & hospitalization odds significantly. Getting the vaccine is the only way we can get back to normal.
5. The vaccines we currently have are developed to target the spike protein that the Coronavirus uses to enter cells. Even if the virus mutates, the vaccine is likely to remain effective because of this - the virus cannot mutate this facet of itself without significantly reducing its infectious capabilities. Saying that vaccines are moot is ridiculous and goes against all the research we have that proves they are highly effective.
This, especially the part about the vaccine targeting the spike protein that it uses to become infectious in the first place. Also, the most popular & effective vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna) don't actually contain the virus itself, they trigger the ability of the immune system to target the spike protein without actual exposure to the virus.
Additionally - I want to add that most people cannot likely afford to stay home completely and even go unemployed just to ensure they don't go outside. I can work at home almost completely if I had to, but it is not possible for everyone. Certainly not for like, the next few months, until things get better.
Also, as it has already been said by Neoquest, things almost certainly won't get better, not completely, either globally or in the US or likely even in your respective country, until vaccines are sufficiently rolled out to enough of the populace. It is our best chance, please do not discredit them.

Glad to hear you are doing fine dude. Man, just one more year of med school eh, I remember when you mentioned you had just went in there haha.
This has been quite the topsy turvy year, but I'm doing ok I guess and even managed to change jobs to a better one.

I don't watch Game of Thrones and have never really seen a compelling reason to get in.

Seriously though. It probably was the trip to Bangladesh I went on with a bunch of friends from school.
It was just 3 weeks long but what an eye opener. In some ways I still miss it. I thought it was just me (or escapism - everytime I got despondent about work life I ended up thinking of Bangladesh) but some others have picked up my longing of it when the topic comes to that. So maybe there's something there and I should plan a trip back someday.
Second would be a trip to New Zealand with family. When I was younger and before uni we would go on vacation as a family like twice a year. This one was one of the most relaxing and picturesque honestly. Was really a good vacation that just allowed me to relax, unwind, and enjoy the amazing scenery. Then again, I was pretty young then - if I went there now I'd probably get some messages from work halfway through or so lol.

Sorry you're not doing well. That always really sucks.
Thank yoou for the sentiment. Really appreciate how you take the time to read and reply to every response thoughtfully and sincerely. I've since recovered from the flu, still keep picking up some minor symptoms here and there but that's normal lol. Work though...at least i'm getting a promotion. Pay hasn't been discussed yet but it should be an increase starting the coming month. My existing manager isn't happy about it and still noticeably hates me though, but ehh.
I hope you do better soon as well Coops. Had my own depressive episodes during these times so I know it really sucks. Is there some way you can get some assistance or support as well?

Many changes at work. Kinda exciting but also kinda scary. Been sick as well for like 2 weeks but kept on working lol. Eventually went to the doctor to get stronger meds, and also put on a jacket (cos I have the flu) and it seems to help.

/r/nosleep is awesome for good reading material. The ones with high upvotes (hundreds, and especially the ones with thousands) are mostly real good reads.
